Our specimens are certainly referable to the common white Water-lily of Europe.
Planchon remarks, under N. Cachemiriana, which he had not seen, that it is too
nearly allied to N. alba* of which we do not 'doubt that^t is a form, though the
plate in Jacquemout's' Voyage is in many points unlike that plant, the petals being
too narrow and acute, and the fruit different-looking. It is, however, impossible to
figura NylKjihacc from dried specimens. Cambessedes describes the fruit as lanate;
and we find, from a memorandum by Lehmann in, the Hookerian Herbarium, that
the ovary of N. Kosteletzkyi is villoos, Planchou has referred N, Kosteletskyi to
N. alia.
